The Montessori Education

Montessori at Inly

What does it mean to be an “innovative Montessori school”?

At Inly, it means we combine Montessori methods with other proven practices to develop 21st-century skills and core knowledge — a Montessori+ model and the richest learning experience possible. We encourage children to make meaningful connections through interdisciplinary studies and to constantly challenge themselves through critical thinking and creative problem-solving.

Montessori schools embrace student-centered learning

A Montessori education is designed to adapt to and fit a student's needs, interests, and development while still teaching core academic subjects and fundamental skills. Inly brings this to life by constantly developing new curriculum, learning materials, and experiences for its students. Inly's innovative approach strengthens critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, communication and global awareness—essential skills for the 21st century.

One test of the correctness of educational procedure is the happiness of the child. – Maria Montessori

An Integrated Approach

As an innovative Montessori school, Inly integrates many beliefs and practices, including…
  • Learning through exploration and discovery, with concrete, hands-on materials.
  • Respect for the individual and recognition of individual learning styles and paces.
  • The balance of freedom and responsibility in the classroom (freedom within structure).
  • Respect for each child as a competent learner, and trust in the child's basic desire to learn.
  • Noncompetitive work which compares only to the child's previous work.
  • Opportunities for both independent and cooperative work.
  • Social and learning environments designed to help children feel good about who they are and what they have the power to accomplish.
